My IIS is not executing Perl Files

Created 2001-04-06

Question:

I have configured Active Perl in my IIS 4.0  following the steps exactly given in the installation by Active Perl, but I am unable to execute the perl programs using the CGI. The Active Perl's documentation is not at all helping me out.

Answer:

You must have added  the .pl and .cgi extention in your Application Configuration. Once you have these file extentions added to your setting along with the appropriate setting, this should have been included in you Active Perl Documentation. You will need to make sure you have execute permisions set on all your cgi files. Also by default unless this has changed, the only file extention that works is .pl. If you want .cgi to work also then you can just add that to the Application Configuration.
